Vote Now, BFFs: Do You Think Rachel McAdams Red Carpet Beauty Look Was Hot or Not?

Mon, November 8, 2010 12:31pm EDT by 1 Comment

Was the actress’ red carpet beauty look messy and marvelous or just a hot mess?

Rachel McAdams showed up on the red carpet for the premiere of her new movie, Morning Glory, rocking a very sultry look. Heavily tousled hair, come-hither eye makeup and a very vampy lip. Here’s the question: does this “bedhead” look work for the red carpet?

See, here’s the thing about looks that are “undone” when it comes to red carpet photography: sometimes they work and sometimes…well, they just look messy. I like where she was going with this (very 80’s-era Jessica Lange) but I’m not quite sure that it translates. Her hair looks a little TOO windblown and her eyeliner looks smudged…and not necessarily in a good way.

It’s sexy for sure, but is more Walk of Shame/morning-after than walk the red carpet?

Let this be a lesson: when in doubt, less is more when it comes to hair and makeup when your photo’s about to be taken.

You decide? Do you think Rachel McAdams’ red carpet look was hot or a hot mess? Vote now!
